Panic Buttons

A panic button is an electronic device designed to assist in alerting somebody in emergency situations where a threat to persons or property exists.

The buttons send emergency alarms to the Police Dispatcher in the Communication Center at the Police Department.  The panic buttons are to be used when a staff member feels threatened or observes an emergency is happening and when using the telephone is not possible or prudent. 

The buttons are not a substitute for dialing the police emergency number, 911, for thefts or similar police needs.

If someone pushes a button accidentally, he/she should immediately call the Police at x 2415, and report a false alarm.
